    Things I shouldn

    Here is a list of some of the guns I once owned and should never have sold.
    1) A really nice Browning Broadway...the first time I ever shot doubles I broke a 47 with the Broadway. A fellow shooter talked me out of it about a month later.
    2) A Perazzi MX3 Combo that Tom Seitz did the barrels on.....need I say more?
    3) A Perazzi MX3 Special that Seitz did the barrels and comb on...3rd screw-up
    4) A collection of over 30 Winchester model 42's in every possible configuration...I just HAD to sell them when I thought the market had topped out in 1987.
    5) My first Remington 1100 trap.....had I stuck with it all these years I would have a LOT more money and probably would be shooting it better than all the $5,000 plus guns I have bought since thinking they were the "magic wand".
    OK...YOUR turn...and don't lie!!

    why on earth would I limit my stupid decision in this regard to ONLY guns.

    my '51 Chevy pickup that I restored to factory original and sold in 1982 for $850....after buying it for $600.

    Just for starters....

    Well since were talking cars! My "60 Vette". Mother needed some money to put down on a house so my wife and I decided to sell the vette and get her the $ for her down payment. Long made short, we sold it for a lot less than it was worth and went over to my mothers to let her know we got the $ for her. Her words to us "stick your money I already got it". The Vette was gone and I knew i'd never get another early vette. Worked out ok we bought our first house with the money. Bulge.

    Sold to get through college...

    1) My first .22 revolver -- a Ruger Single Six convertible. Carried on my trapline as a kid.

    2) My nicest 22 Pistol -- a Browning Medalist w/ case & accessories.

    Thankfully, I've since been able to buy back much nicer examples of both. Still not the same as my beloved originals, though.
